Sir I am losing my and some hair became grey. Can you help me or me some tip to recover?

MD - Dermatology , Venereology & Leprosy, MBBS
Dermatologist, Secunderabad
Hello, hair loss with hair graying is an indication of vitamin and mineral deficiency in the body. Both can also start following a major surgery or illness in which the body suffers from vitamin and mineral deficiency. There are lots of new medicines for hair loss and hair graying like platelet rich plasma therapy (prp) and serums. I would suggest you to consult a dermatologist so that proper treatment can be started.

I am a working lady my skin is going dull and dark due to sunlight what does I do.

MD - Dermatology , Venereology & Leprosy, MBBS
Dermatologist, Secunderabad
Hello. Exposure to sun results in some damaging changes in the skin that turn your skin dull and dark. In addition, if you have an oily skin, the breakdown products of the oil also irritate the skin leading to dullness. I would recommend you use a good pharmaceutical grade sunscreen. There are very good creams that could bring back the glow in the skin. Please do not use over the counter medicines as they can damage the skin further. Consult a dermatologist to get the best treatment.

I am suffering from dandruff from 4 to 5 yrs. It's very itchy and on my head there are a lott pimples also there. So how can I cure by naturally by home remedies.

MD(EH)/AM/Accupressure

Dear lybrate-user, Do not change shampoos frequently. Use only coconut oil by mixing camphor three four pieces in 100 ml coconut oil twice in a week. Or Take 2 aspirin tablets Shampoo Crush the tablets. Add it to any normal shampoo. Let it lather and keep it on for 5 minutes. Wash your hair. If you feel the aspirin powder on your scalp, rinse again with plain shampoo.

From last 6 years, I have a hyper pigmentation on my cheeks and nose. I tried so many ointments like lumacip plus, lumaglow and along with this I have to use sunscreen lotion for 2-3 times a day. When I don't apply it, scars visible again. Is there any permanent solution to get rid of this. Pls let me know I am fed up of these. I don't want to apply lotion as I am office goer.

Hi make a paste of neem leaves and apply on the targeted pimples. If you cannot get fresh neem leaves, try to get some dried bottled neem leaves, steep for 10 minutes in warm water and use as a paste. Apply pranacharya face glow on your face for 15 minutes then wash it with warm water.

8 Remedial Measures to prevent Pollution from affecting your skin

You feel you have wasted your youth at the age of 30 when you see grey hair, wrinkles on your skin and all other visible signs of ageing.

You wonder what went wrong, after all, you pumped iron in the gym, ate healthy food, got up early in the morning and did yoga, slept early, meditated, used all kinds of skin creams and the lists goes on and on.

We all do a lot of things to stay young and look young but there is one thing we don’t do and that is protect our body and our skin from pollution.

Have you ever wondered how much pollution can affect your skin?

Probably no, hence read on to find out..

Effects of pollution on skin

1.Causes aging, wrinkles, pimples, black heads etc.

2.Rids all natural oils from your skin

3.Dust forms a layer over your skin and congests your pores.

4.Sun’s heat during noon is very harmful as ultra violet rays of the sun can cause cancer, rashes and diseases. Pollution can cause numerous skin diseases and rashes.

5.Pollution can make your skin look dull as it rids them off oxygen.

6.It makes your skin rough.

7.It gives you a tan, which does not go away so easily.

Hence, now that you know the harmful effects of pollution on your skin it is better to curb them and keep them a bay.

Some of the Remedial Measures to prevent Pollution from affecting your skin are:

1.Wrap around a scarf or a Duppata around your head while going out.

2.Apply sunscreen when you go out in the sun from 12pm to 4 pm Or the much better option is to carry an umbrella when you go out in the sun

3.Moisturize your skin by applying moisturizer every night before sleeping.

4.Take an oil bath once a week to replenish your skin of its oils.

5.Try to wear a jacket or a coat while going out so that it shields you from the direct effect of pollution.

6.Mix Shikakai Powder, Channe ka Aatta, Haldi Powder, add water as needed, and make a fine paste of it. Use it as a substitute to soap.

7.Use warm water and scrub, to wash your face after coming home.

8.Eat healthy; it will help to flush out the toxins from your system.

Hence, if you follow these tips faithfully and accordingly, then you will be safe from pollution to some extent.

One cannot evade pollution completely; hence, it is advisable to take proper precautions.

I am 20 years old. Acne is my major conCern homemade treatments and some healthy diet for glowing and fair skin free from acne.

MBBS, MD (PSM), M.F.Hom (London)

lybrate-user Science still doesnot know whether diet and acne ae related .You eat low glycemic diet, rich in colorful fruits, and vegtables, omega 3 fat with 30 mg zinc gluconate. Treat your skin than chasing any theoritical yet proven diet. Some scieist hypothesis that Harmone IGF-1 produces skin oil sebum. Some hypothesize that milk and IGF-1 component, could lead to increased skin oil and resulting Acne breakout. IGF-1 also stimulate the body to produce cells. Acne is thought to sometimes begin with overproduction of skin cells inside the pore which causes the pore to become clogged. MILK may may lead to overproduction of skin cells within pores as milk contain the androgen .High glycemic food i, e sugar, white bread, white potato and white rice. Low calory intake help in acne and increased calory causes Acne. You take Omega 3 or or cold water fish. Take antioxidant in colorful fruits and vegetable. Avoid oily food as it cause high sebum formation. Homeopathy can do best as its effect on harmone and control the inflammation.

I have black heads on my nose and small pimples on my face so suggest me some face cream?

BHMS
Homeopath, Raebareli
Please use Tea tree oil which is excellent for treating acne and pimples. It has antibacterial properties that help fight the bacteria that cause these skin problems. Plus, its soothing properties help reduce the redness and inflammation of pimples. It also helps dry out blackheads and whiteheads. Just dip a cotton ball in tea tree essential oil and dab it on the affected area. Rinse your face after 15 to 20 minutes. Another option is to mix a few drops of tea tree oil in 1 tablespoon of aloe vera gel. Apply it on your pimples and blemishes, leave it on for 20 minutes and then rinse it off. Note: Steer clear of tea tree oil if you have sensitive skin. For further queries get back to me.
